You may have already noticed the “Wovember” button on my sidebar. Many of you will already know what it’s about.
I thought I would make sure that as many people as possible knew about it though by doing a post as well.
Wovember is the initiative of Kate Davies (of the fabulous blog Needled) and Felicity Ford, who are putting together a petition to bring about changes to the way the word “wool” can be used in garment marketing.
If you haven’t already seen it, follow this link to find out more and how you can help support proper use of the description “wool” in garments. It’s a worthwhile cause.
It’s an interesting little loophole around consumer labelling laws. I’m assuming that the UK must be the same as New Zealand, where you must label a garment with its fibre content. Apparently, the same labelling standards to not appear to apply to how a garment is described!
Go Kate and Felicity!
